[18:26] - 

Religious freedom is a gift, especially in a day where Christianity is considered extreme and voicing your convictions is deemed offensive. How do we navigate the tricky waters of religious expression, and how do we remain hopeful when we see Christ ignored or even mocked in the circles around us? Our panel weighs in.

We All Struggle

[23:25] - 

Some will try to convince you that Christians shouldn't experience pain and struggle, but the Bible tells us otherwise. In “Me Too,” Jon Weece explores God's goodness in the brokenness of life. He's seen plenty of it, but he’s working with the members of his church to creatively infuse love and healing into his community and beyond — like hosting a city-wide prom for the disabled and disadvantaged. It's a story that's both convicting and inspiring.
